    To all the members; Have a great year end and I hope you all are doing well in the New year and hope I can keep annoying you with my proza. Anyway don't over-eat, over-drug, over-party, that makes just the fitness clubs rich. Never mind Jesus was not fat, as far as I know; goat meat is healthy.

    I agree. No need for disagreements here. Best wishes to all for safety, good health, peace of mind, and little to no conflict. I know we have a few days before the years end but it's always a good time to send well wishes to all. I encourage all to stay open minded because we can all continue to learn and progress.

    Tis season to wish all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. As the Christ was born ages ago, people around the world celebrate this occasion with merriment and peace. We give gifts as was done by the Magi visiting the Christ by guiding star to a lonely manger. We reflect on peace and good will, but we also try to not think on the horrific tragedy that happens around the world. If only, the Christ was more in the hearts of more people, maybe wars, greed, and the power seeking of those bent on preying on humanity would be less or eliminated. At least a Christ was born and the world celebrates in many ways to bring merriment and good cheer to all. Even those that are atheist, agnostic and of other beliefs celebrate the occasion by the giving of gifts like the Magi and its not hard to realize that just maybe they do believe in their own ways.

    Again, relax and have joy with your families and cherish this holiday time as it has been done for centuries.

    Have Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year.

    Have fun with your Pagan fir tree and decorations and an Eskimo Santa; the actual "fest" is that the days are getting longer as celebrated by the Pagans/ Vikings. Sure Jesus is helping a lot with our created wars, greed, and power seeking (which the evangelicals are doing right now), it is time he wakes up from his death (we need all the help we can get), which is virtually impossible; ask him.

    Happy Holidays. Okay I just contributed to the war on Christmas.

    Actually Christmas is a capitalist friendly holiday, and I contributed big time by joining the last minute shoppers in the stores today.

    What a glorious media event where several thousand attended a Hallmark presentation. As I watched with excitement and enjoyment of an event for a Christmas celebration, I was entertained to a heavy metal rock-a-thon musical of a Christmas story, poetry and heavy metal rock music. The annual musical event was a great way to celebrate the season with thousands of similar tastes in music.

    We were entertained by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, which most people recognize the musical group and their many record achievements. It's an old rock group from ages past and they still have their flavor for a great night of entertainment in lasers, fire, theatrical displays and of course, their loud-pleasing string guitars, flute, keyboards and accompanying orchestra hitting every high point imaginable. Over the years the Trans-Siberia Orchestra has changed entertainers as they age and new talent has emerged, their central theme has remained for high charged entertainment and to celebrate a glorious celebration of Christmas.

    As the show was ending, they indicated they would see us again next year. Don't know what other city they are going to next, but that is entertainment at it's best...............young and old. I raised my IPhone with spotlight on as others did likewise in events of past where we raised our Bic Lighters high in the air.

    This was just one event that helped make this a great Christmas. Now, bring the New Year, I'm ready!

    To all of you the writers and non writers: A happy and prosperous New Year. To AMC: I hope you keep praying that your feet get dry again in Missouri (Misery) that is what you get if all the money is spent on wars and not infrastructure.

    I certainly hope ( I don't pray; that never helps anyway) that we elect a "decent"? President the coming year; but I've got a nasty feeling it is going to be half ass and this country will go deeper into the shit.

    ANYWAY A HEALTHY AND JOYFULL NEW YEAR WHISHED FOR ALL OF YOU.

    I"LL DRINK SOME DUTCH JENEVER TO THAT!!!

    Before I ever see flooding in my area, all of Florida will be under Climatic Changing raising ocean water. Even after Florida is under water as well as most sea located cities, I'll be high and dry above sea level. Although Denver will out last us all but we'll have to experience many years of holidays, Christmas's and especially New Years.

    Happy New Year to all. My New Year's eve will be spent watching the Times Square ball and cities around the world celebrations. Of course, Dutch reminded me to oil & clean my guns getting ready for 2016 even though I can't fit in my old uniform anymore. You don't need a uniform to have a good gun ready. Have good cheer and look forward to seeing a woman in the white house as our next President for EIGHT years. Have great cheer and look forward to seeing new gun control regulations. Have more cheer and look forward to an improved economy, 2015 was like a snail trapped in glue. Have the best cheer and look forward to improving foreign relations and ending the Middle East drama with ISIS as only a horror story to tell little children. 2016 will be phenomenal.

    ACM, regardless of all the disputes we have, I still like you. At least you have guts and defend yourself; I appreciate that, regardless of that we don't see eye to eye. Have a great year and hope you become an atheist in 2016, Ha ha.
